Psalm 84. Quam dilecta!

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Traditional - Sixteenth Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O HOW amiable are thy dwellings, *
    thou Lord of hosts.
  2. My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord; *
    my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
  3. Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest, where she may lay her young; *
    even thy altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
  4. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house; *
    they will be alway praising thee.
  5. Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; *
    in whose heart are thy ways.
  6. Who going through the vale of misery use it for a well; *
    and the pools are filled with water.
  7. They will go from strength to strength, *
    and unto the God of gods appeareth every one of them in Sion.
  8. O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer; *
    hearken, O God of Jacob.
  9. Behold, O God our defender, *
    and look upon the face of thine anointed.
  10. For one day in thy courts *
    is better than a thousand. 11 I had rather be a door-keeper in the house of my God, *
    than to dwell in the tents of ungodliness.
  11. For the Lord God is a light and defence; *
    the Lord will give grace and worship; and no good thing shall he withhold from them that live a godly life.
  12. O Lord God of hosts, *
    blessed is the man that putteth his trust in thee.
